Unfriend Me by Marika Ray
It’s hard to tell your best friend you’re in love with her when she’s busy dating everyone but you.
I’ve been called a smart-mouthed, tattooed firecracker with a penchant for running straight into trouble, but after coming off the worst break up in history, all I want is to get my life together. No more trouble, no more surprises.
So when my best friend changes the rules on me, I’m not sure how to react. Though my body sure knows how to react seeing him without his shirt on. Where did all those muscles come from? And when my ex comes back to town to wreak havoc, my lofty plans go right out the window.
I fell in love with Amelia in the sixth grade when I pulled her off another girl in a hair pulling fight. And she put me directly in the friend zone. We’ve been through everything together from ER trips after skateboarding mishaps to fighting off a peacock with a mean streak. But the one thing I’ve never told her is how I really feel. Now that Amelia is single again, it’s time to make my move. But Amelia has never gone down without a fight involved, and this will be no different.
Either she’ll fall in love with me like I hope, or Amelia will unfriend me forever.
Wreck by Cora Brent
Not too long ago my future was all mapped out.
Then two brutal swings of a steel bat wielded by a maniac wrecked my world.
The adrenaline high I used to get from pitching a perfect game is gone.
The major league dreams I counted on have vanished.
And the peace of mind I took for granted is shattered.
The thrills I seek out now are self-destructive.
I know this and I can’t stop.
What I didn’t expect is for my downward spiral to be interrupted by a shy beauty with a messy past.
Gracie and I very different.
And yet we’re tragically alike.
I can prove to her that we’re supposed to be together.
All she has to do is give me the chance.
And all I have to do is remember how to be the guy she thinks I am.
I’ve learned the hard way that one reckless mistake can topple your house of cards.
And I thought I was finished taking chances.
But Thomas Gentry made it clear he was on a mission to break my armor and guys like Thomas didn’t come along every day.
He was as charming as he was headstrong, as sexy as he was protective.
He put all the book heroes I’ve ever drooled over to shame.
Falling for Thomas was inevitable.
And I was his before I understood something important.
We both need to find a way to heal ourselves.
Otherwise we might ruin each other forever...
Perfect Wreckage by Catherine Cowles
My past taught me to play it safe.
To stay far away from handsome men who promised it all.
My life was good without them. Stable, secure, predictable.
But one kiss showed me that I’d been playing it safe for far too long.
One night, and all I wanted was more of his wildfire.
One challenge and my carefully constructed walls tumbled down.
Amidst the rubble, I realized there was more to this man than I ever dreamed.
When everything fell apart, he showed me what it meant to stay.
How to truly live.
But some demons don’t stay buried.
The past can come knocking when you least expect.
And the life he’s showing me might be shorter than either of us expected…
The Edge of Tomorrow by Freya Barker
Solitude and motor oil meets soul food and wariness
I’m a grease-stained enigma.
A watcher, a protector, an ex-con, and a mechanic.
My name is Brick.
I’m old enough to know good things come to those who wait, and hungry enough to go after what I want.
I am a proud independent.
A nurturer, a cook, a casualty, and a grandparent.
My name is Lisa.
I’m cautious enough to keep my distance, and too wise to let a chance at love pass me by.
We seem unmatched—in race, in history, in lifestyle—but when tragedy leaves a baby in our care and a target on our backs, we discover the strength of family.

Meet Ari! Queen of Book pimping, graphic designing genius, audio whore
I love all the romance, but sports, enemies-to-lovers, and reformed bad boys are my main jam! I’m in constant audiobook fangirl mode, but I also eyeball all the words, too. I’m a mom to three small terrors ranging from teenager to toddler. I have an amazing husband who buys me beautiful bookshelves and tolerates my love for narrator Will M. Watt. (Listen to his audiobooks, but remember I licked him first.)
